To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 7 November 2017 to Question 111165 on Saudi Arabia: Cluster Munitions, for what reason the UK government ceased to make offers to Saudi Arabia to remove and destroy the Royal Saudi Airforces's inventory of BL755 cluster munitions after 2010.

Saudi Arabia has made a commitment that it will not use BL-755 cluster munitions, which the UK welcomes. The Saudi Government is nevertheless aware that we would be willing to assist with the disposal of any remaining stocks. The UK also continues to encourage Saudi Arabia, as well as other non-parties, to accede to the Convention on Cluster Munitions.
